In this episode, Did You Know Gaming takes a look at some facts, secrets, Easter eggs and history of the Sega Saturn. The Sega Saturn is the successor to the Sega Genesis and the precursor to the Sega Dreamcast. Although the system sold well in Japan, it performed poorly in western markets. Many attribute its failure in the west to the lack of a main-series Sonic The Hedgehog game, such as the cancelled Sonic X-treme.

    I did know, actually… Every single fact 😛

  2. Wilbur Powell August 14, 2018 at 3:55 pm

    I still have mine.

  3. Arin Lewis August 14, 2018 at 3:55 pm

    So basically Sony only got so successful because everyone kept screwing them over so they decided to try and screw everyone else over

  4. SkulShurtugalTCG August 14, 2018 at 3:55 pm

    It's a bummer the Saturn was such a failure. It's probably the best 2D powerhouse console in history.

  5. Nitro Indigo August 14, 2018 at 3:55 pm

    Real life AU where the Saturn launched on Saturnday.

  6. Billy Gil Music August 14, 2018 at 3:55 pm

    SEGA URANUS

    The Sega Saturn is a FANTASTIC system.

  8. Brandon Booth August 14, 2018 at 3:55 pm

    Did you know? Gaming hipsters will claim that the Saturn and/or Dreamcast are the best consoles every made, but they're wrong.

  9. SomecallmeChasina, don't ya know. August 14, 2018 at 3:55 pm

    Oh boy, can't wait to see people complain how Greg is voicing over this instead of insert some YouTuber here

  10. JC Holmanation August 14, 2018 at 3:55 pm

    Am I the only person who’s never even seen a Sega Saturn?

  11. JROKGaming August 14, 2018 at 3:55 pm

    "He declined due to Sony's inexperience in the console market."

    I'm OLD Greg!

  14. Sicarius Seven August 14, 2018 at 3:55 pm

    My friend had a Sega Saturn and I always wanted to get one myself. In the end I got a Playstation and N-64. Good times were had by all.

  15. Coltin Lindsley August 14, 2018 at 3:55 pm

    Did You Know?
    That the SEGA Saturn is shit?

    Best console ever 🙂

  19. The Mounty Presents August 14, 2018 at 3:55 pm

    Oddly enough when I saw the title, I thought it was Greg Wilmot for a second

  20. FIR35T0RM August 14, 2018 at 3:55 pm

    shuffles notes

    walks away

  21. Midnightas August 14, 2018 at 3:55 pm

    Wow, so low that you sponsor even Wix.

  22. Big Dylan Games August 14, 2018 at 3:55 pm

    It’s sad that Astal didn’t make it past the Saturn. That was a genuinely good game.

  23. PSI Rock Omega August 14, 2018 at 3:55 pm

    It's incredible how many decisions turned out terribly and ended up keeping the Saturn from greatness.

  24. Angel August 14, 2018 at 3:55 pm

    Where do you put the ashes of sega consoles?
    In a sega satURN. Huehue

  25. SentientSockPuppet August 14, 2018 at 3:55 pm

    Wix looks lit

  26. Skidd2 August 14, 2018 at 3:55 pm

    Almost wish I had a Saturn, but I was 7 in '95, so it didn't happen. Got a dreamcast in '99 tho.

  27. Cristian Martinez August 14, 2018 at 3:55 pm

    I have ideas for videos. specifically about consoles.
    Psp
    PS Vita
    Xbox one.
    That's all you need to complete the list. :/
    Edit: And Sega game gear and Sega nomad

  28. UnknownFox August 14, 2018 at 3:55 pm

    I love the Saturn myself, still play games on it through other means as the 3 I owned had issues despite being taken care of. Do wish a Saturn collection could be seen but keep hearing "Files are missing" when its brought up.

  29. Max August 14, 2018 at 3:55 pm

    Man what a rough go of it. Glad they're still making games. Really excited for VC4 and Yakuza on PC

  30. Mr. Blocky August 14, 2018 at 3:55 pm

    Jesus, Sega of Japan really did screw everyone over.

  31. AlexanderTheNotSoGreat August 14, 2018 at 3:55 pm

    It’s about time you finally did a video on the Saturn. Long live the Saturn.

  32. Arcanus Zenbrk August 14, 2018 at 3:55 pm

    I always feel terrible hearing about how terribly SEGA did after the Genesis' life started to run out. If they just made smarter decisions, they could still be a force to be reckoned with, but instead they did hasty actions to compete with Nintendo and Sony, and thus the Saturn and Dreamcast flopped as a result. Yeah, I know I'm a "SEGA Fanboy" and thus my opinion doesn't matter, but I really do wish they could have just done better back in the 90s and especially in nowadays. Maybe if they could learn, they could be revered again, but let's face it, they most likely will never learn. wow, this was an unnecessarily poignant comment

  33. Angel Flash August 14, 2018 at 3:55 pm

    "jagyooah"

  34. Dorelaxen August 14, 2018 at 3:55 pm

    Sega of Japan were stunningly inept. Hilariously so. Arrogant in baffling ways. If they had just let Kalinske handle things, as he was able to achieve the impossible by unseating Nintendo as the top dog, if only for a time, the Saturn might have been the best console out of that generation.

  35. Chris The Rottweiler August 14, 2018 at 3:55 pm

    So simply put, Japan fuck it up.

  36. HeyDude August 14, 2018 at 3:55 pm

    So basically… SEGA is garbage at management and it harmed them way before Sonic got destroyed.

  37. Alexandros Tsitlakidis August 14, 2018 at 3:55 pm

    Hears Panzer Dragoon music A DYKG on Panzer Dragoon in the forseeable future, perhaps?

  38. Otacon173 August 14, 2018 at 3:55 pm

    8:01 I nutted

  39. grapes9h5 August 14, 2018 at 3:55 pm

    Oh Sega in the 90’s. I love them, but boy did they mess up everything. Dreamcast was incredible, yet doa.

  40. Atmapalazzo August 14, 2018 at 3:55 pm

    This whole video is basically did you know Hayao Nakayama is a fucking egomaniac who toppled an entire international company because "japan is smarter than the world"

  41. Definitive Dubs August 14, 2018 at 3:55 pm

    In retrospect, they should've never made the Sega CD or 32X and collaborated with Sony on the Saturn. Maybe then, Nintendo would be the one left in the dust.

  42. JP Truth August 14, 2018 at 3:55 pm

    I loved the Saturn and still probably my favorite console ever. Nights into Dreams and Alberts Odyssey Legend of Eldean changed my life. Those were true beautiful soul searching dream games.

  43. Cajun J August 14, 2018 at 3:55 pm

    I'm a simple man; I see a Sega Saturn topic, I drop a comment.

  44. UK RPGFan August 14, 2018 at 3:55 pm

    Fuck off with ya wix….

  45. The Internet Explorer August 14, 2018 at 3:55 pm

    Yes, my favorite failure!

  46. Igorowan August 14, 2018 at 3:55 pm

    Hey, remember the Saturn's horrible anti-consumer, developer-unfriendly, and messy launch? Yeah, there are people who still try to defend it to this day.

  47. Khalid Shafiee August 14, 2018 at 3:55 pm
